The Healer

This healer
does not recommend remedy,
Cures itself.
The longing ends
With the presence
A divine feeling!
Relieves
Pain and restiveness.
The revocable presence of the signified does
what multiple signifiers cannot.
Composes and restores
the flailing self.
Submitting is uplifting
and
Affliction, soothing
A few moments
Alas!
The Lacanian lack persists…
